BOOK REVIEW- DO NOT TELL ME NO by Kathryn Jane
When a kick-ass woman decides she will find her missing family, the special agent assigned to keep her safe is in for the ride of his life.
Cassandra - Exceptionally smart, but every now and then, her stubborn streak and sense of adventure get her into trouble. Riding into the mountains after a runaway horse might not be her brightest idea--but there's always Plan B.
Gage - Ten years with Special Forces and now running his family's security company, he's trained to the nth degree, and doesn't do failure. But for the first time ever, he's screwed up a mission and can't get a handle on the frustrating woman he's supposed to be keeping out of trouble. AMAZON 4 stars
I liked it with a few reservations.
When they described Cassandra as a kick-ass woman in the book blurb? They weren't kidding. She had learned to be tough, she had to survive her childhood and her mother. When pushed, she shoved back. It wasn't very hard to like her pretty quickly.
Gage was also a pretty interesting character, although at times he had me shaking my head. He and his "team" keep her in the dark too much of the time to my way of thinking and I didn't like that. Also it was weird that they expected her to just fall in line with them, when they kept manipulating her and messing with her mind. They weren't smart enough to see that keeping her in the dark in just about everything wasn't going to bite them in the butt? Maybe it was over confidence in their abilities? And they did have abilities and some really good "toys".
There is plenty of action, twist and turns. They were some really good descriptions of locations, safe houses and things used to keep her captive and safe. The secondary people were good too. Well, not all of them were good but they were well written.
